Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software and data corruption, are the result of a problematic supply of power. There is also a common problem with describing power problems in a standard way. This white paper will describe the most common types of power disturbances, what can cause them, what they can do to your critical equipment, and how to safeguard your equipment, using the IEEE standards for describing power quality problems.

IT today is more complex than ever. Public cloud, networks, storage systems, servers, and applications all combine to deliver today’s IT services. But how do you manage such a diverse and complex infrastructure? Can legacy tools help after this seismic shift? This document answers these questions and provides 20 tools you need to deliver services in this new hybrid IT world. Today’s IT environment provides greater promise than ever before. New technologies are driving new capabilities and even more opportunities to differentiate. The opportunity for innovation has never been greater: faster compute, more storage, and new applications all working together to drive greater efficiency and greater power. But this wave of innovations has also added greater complexity since one failure in this increasingly complex IT stack means a failure of the entire service. New consumer-focused cloud based applications are setting a high standard—nearly 100% up time with peak performance all while IT.

Raising IT inlet temperatures is a common recommendation given to data center operators as a strategy to improve data center efficiency. While it is true that raising the temperature does result in more economizer hours, it does not always have a positive impact on the data center overall. In this paper, we provide a cost (capex & energy) analysis of a data center to demonstrate the importance of evaluating the data center holistically, inclusive of the IT equipment energy. The impact of raising temperatures on server failures is also discussed.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty. Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

Downtime happens and often at the worst time possible. Organizations experiencing downtime face direct and indirect costs from the loss of critical systems. This whitepaper discusses a Globalscape survey of 283 IT professionals and end users revealing the frequency of unplanned downtime, the effects on organizations, including average costs, and what IT administrators can do to minimize core system failure.

Every data center IT manager must constantly deal with certain practical constraints such as time, complexity, reliability, maintainability, space, compatibility, and money. The challenge is that business application demands on computing technology often don’t cooperate with these constraints. A day is lost due to a software incompatibility introduced during an upgrade, hours are lost tracing cables to see where they go, money is spent replacing an unexpected hardware failure, and so on. Day in and day out, these sorts of interruptions burden data center productivity. Sometimes, it’s possible to temporarily improve the situation by upgrading to newer technology. Faster network bandwidth and storage media can reduce the time it takes to make backups. Faster processors — with multiple cores and larger memory address space — make it possible to practically manage virtual machines.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

By necessity, every company is now a software company. By 2017, two-thirds of customer service transactions will no longer require the support of a human intermediary. That means that if you haven’t already done so, you must adapt your business model to meet the needs of online customers. Failure to do so will put you at a severe competitive disadvantage. And chief among those demands is that you provide an exceptional user experience. App speed, reliability and ease of use are the new currency in this fast-changing landscape. In fact, app characteristics such as convenience and the ability to save users time can enhance brand loyalty by 60 percent or more.

The people in your organization have access to volumes of information that was once unimaginable. Success or failure can hinge on whether or not people can use this information to make wise decisions quickly. But without the ability to make sense of information, a knowledge gap exists, and the best anyone can do is guess or follow a hunch. Business intelligence helps you decipher and extract meaning from data so you can make informed decisions.

Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks. To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data. This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance by 75 percent.

Whether we like it or not we are all IT users now. Through the ubiquity of networks of devices that we rely on for information, security and day-to-day transactions even those who eschew technology now rely on it, even if they do not acknowledge it. The failure of these networks can lead to widespread disruption, unhappy customers, unproductive employees and lost business. Ensuring their availability, security and efficiency is a job for experts who need powerful tools to carry out the task.
